  • Patent number: 11112617
    Abstract: A spreading optics system distributes electromagnetic (EM) waves emitted by an emitter having an emission vector. The spreading optics system includes reflective surfaces. The reflective surfaces include concave first reflector having a concave cross section in a plane substantially perpendicular the emission vector. The reflective surfaces further include a convex second reflector arranged further from the emitter than the concave first reflector. The convex second reflector has a convex cross section in a second plane substantially parallel the first plane. The reflective surfaces are configured to divergently redirect the EM waves into a vector fan at a predetermined angle relative to the emission vector.

  • Patent number: 9289122
    Abstract: A camera for capturing an image of an object, for example an eye. The camera has at least two light sources and an image-sensing system having two image sensors. A multiple branch optical system transmits outgoing light from the light sources to the object, and transmits incoming light from the object to the image-sensing system. The multiple branch optical system includes an autofocusing element such as a variable power optical element that varies the focus of the incoming light. There is also an image display. There is a controller that controls the operation of the light sources, controls acquisition of images by the image-sensing system, and controls the display of images on the image display. The controller activates an autofocus light source and uses the resulting captured image to automatically adjust the image exposure parameters.
